Herbert West: Reanimator - Part 5 - The Horror From the Shadows by H. P. Lovecraft




This a Forbidden Dragon recording. Read by Marlo Dianne.

Part V of VI (5 of 6).

Many men have related hideous things, not mentioned in print, which happened on the battlefields of the Great War. Some of these things have made me faint, others have convulsed me with devastating nausea, while still others have made me tremble and look behind me in the dark; yet despite the worst of them I believe I can myself relate the most hideous thing of all--the shocking, the unnatural, the unbelievable horror from the shadows...

Convinced that death is merely mechanical failure, and that they can find a chemical mechanism to reboot the machine, West and our nameless narrator, are on the hunt for bodies--the fresher, the better. Through graveyards and laboratories, they want to find death, chase it, trap it, prod it, and defeat it. But when you chase something to within arm's reach, it can reach back...

Published in 1922 as a six part serial, Herbert West: Reanimator is a classic story of sci-fi and horror by H. P. Lovecraft. Atmosphere, language, and science blend effortlessly, timeless in this gruesome tale of a doctor of death.
